Sitting on green ramp at Bragg in the middle of the night and the Bn CSM sits down and simply chatted with PFC me for 10 minutes about life things, not military things

I was just returning from a very difficult TDY. It was supposed to be a routine air show. It turned into a freaking mess! A Canadian helicopter crashed right in front of show central. Stuff went crazy. A local National Guardsman passed on a request for assistance. Since I was the closest thing to a qualified mechanic, I went and helped. When I got back to home base, the Maintenance Officer met me at the flight line. He wanted all the details of what occurred. So I wrote them down and turned them over to him. A short time later, I was presented a medal. Totally floored me! First time ever for an officer to go out of the way to thank me for a difficult job.

When I got to Germany for my first assignment, 7th Sig Spt Bn, I was a clerk in the Signal office. Little if anything to do but fetch coffee and visit. About the 3 week there my Lt ask if I knew anything about radios, azimuths, line of sight and setting a station up. Told him I did not even understand the question. So he put me under the teaching of a Sp5 and my lessons begin. Then every Friday afternoon the Lt would have a quiz for me on what I had been taught that week. Maybe only 3 or 4 questions but I had to show I was learning. At 6 months I could do everything that Spc5 Mann could do and I was promoted to Spc4. Mann was transferred to Nam and I was the Syscon NCO as a Spc4. Lt. Bontocanti could have let me float around as a goffer and jr. clerk but he took the time to teach me. And when he screwed up, ( as Lt's are known to do) I had no problem covering for him.
